Turkish-backed militias fighting in Syria raping and torturing Kurds, UN finds

 Rebel fighters backed by Turkey are committing war crimes against Kurdish civilians in Syria, according to the UN.

Members of the Syrian National Army — which was supposedly formed to help create a safe zone near the northern border — are believed to have raped and sexually assaulted women and girls, tortured detainees, pillaged homes and businesses and destroyed significant religious and archaeological sites.

UN investigators also point to allegations that Turkish forces were aware of some incidents of looting and were present at prisons when interrogation under torture took place.
